Rachel here: I keep trying to find a minute to write a real post but this will have to do for now. Yesterday was a very rough day for me because of an issue we had with an ICU nurse. In the end, I opted to stay away during the rest of her shift. Kevin’s docs are working on a resolution and my biggest concern, that things she said to them which were untrue do not affect my equity with Kevin’s team. I need them to know that if I come running it’s a big deal and that I know when it’s an emergency and when it’s not. Anyway, it has really hurt my heart a lot to have experienced this issue and especially since, after a lot of prayer, I feel God has told me that there will be no way to resolve this with her directly, and so for now I pray that we will be given different nurses for the rest of his ICU stay and that he will get out of ICU soon!
Please pray for my heart as it is very wounded right now. And also please pray for nurse T, as things are never black and white and I know this has troubled her too. I am reminded of a saying, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
I would also like to simply reach out and thank you all again for your support and specifically financial donations. We are starting to hear rumblings that Kevin won’t be going anywhere any time soon and so it would give us much peace to be able to batten down the hatches with a little bit of extra padding financially.
If you feel so led, we would be grateful for anything that could help cover the bills next month. Or if you would like to help out with paying a specific bill, please reach out to Sarah Thomas to coordinate that.
When we are ready to come home (soon! Please Lord let it be soon!) we could use some help with meals, gas cards for the drive back, and grocery store cards, but for now the most pressing need coming up will be financial.
Please do not feel burdened to give. We are ok for now but God has taught me so much about being humble in making our needs known and so I am following obediently in an effort to stay on top of our finances for the time being. Thank you again.
